Event Details

Welcome to Freelancers Union SPARK Seattle!

We host meetups for freelancers by freelancers: Bring your knowledge, expertise, and questions the first Wednesday of every month (and our Facebook group for in-between events) to connect with other freelancers navigating the solopreneur life. Let's get inspired, and talk about stuff like...

 

MAY'S SPARK:

Contracts are essential for protecting your work as a freelancer. A good contract helps you and your client define the work, set expectations, and avoid misunderstandings. This month's SPARK will offer tips for freelance-friendly contracts, and how to stay protected: 

  • Getting paid on time
  • Copyright and ownership
  • Protecting against common pitfalls 

And we'll introduce you to the free contract creator you need to put it all in writing.

There will also be time to network with other freelancers who may be able to offer tips you hadn’t considered before.

Regardless of industry, we all share similar experiences as independent business owners! We try to ensure everyone leaves with insights and connections that will help their business thrive.


SPARK is built on the premise that we’re stronger together than we are on our own.

The national conversation is live at #FreelanceSPARK. Join us in a whole bunch of cities cities across the country

Hi! My name is Jennifer Mooney and I recently joined the Sacramento SPARK team. I fell into freelancing when I needed a second job about four years ago. I had a friend on Upwork and set up something there and ended up becoming a ghostwriter. It's been exciting and I've met some great people. I want to take it on full-time in the future but I'm sticking with a day job at the moment. 

I love the group. I did from my first meeting and chose to volunteer right away. It was inspiring and refreshing to talk creativity with everyone.
